Dear all

I’m not sure what happened but my post disappeared, I probably pressed something! (Hope I didn’t break any rules)

Here’s the links to the vids, and some pics.

Hi all

Did the correct barrel recoil. Doing it with the bb unit is interesting!
Hope it might help out someone else.

I will have a look and see if I can spot what might have happened. No rules broken mate, but would be good to know what happened so as to avoid a repeat eh !

I think I might have accidentally deleted it, I get worried about posting YouTube links, but it seems silly to post all the stuff twice!, I was just worried I’d peed Someone off with the links.

Have a good night

thanks you two, and Barry , mines a Frankenstein monster of slightly dodgy kit and a heng long, where as yours is museum quality! you should do a few vids of how you produce the brass work, i'm sure there be greatly instructive.

Thanks!

Dear All

Here’s the next bit, messed up the turret bins a bit, got over excited! But corrected it, and a bit more stuck on from trumpeter!

Thanks Barry!

But as you probably noticed I screwed up the loaders mg mount ring, the trumpeter ones too big, so I cannibalised the heng long and trumpeter one together. I did this quickly last night so I didn’t lead anyone else up the garden path!

This is a pretty decent guide to the anti-slip.

An long-time international award-winning modeler once commented to me that the boo boo fixes are what really show skill. Your HengLong/Trumpeter loader's machine gun mount ring is a prime example.
